What is a personal loan?

 

A personal loan is a flexible loan which is typically unsecured, meaning you do not have to put up a house or car to gain finance. Your rate is often dependent on your credit score and will vary lender to lender.

 

Personal loans are used for, but not limited to, debt consolidation, cars, motor bike, jet skis, caravans, home improvements, medical bills, private expenses, funeral expenses, education and even gap finance. Although there are some restricted uses, the use of funds from a personal loan is generally pretty open.

 

Personal loans can be fixed or variable and the fees vary from lender to lender. Some lenders charge larger upfront fees but have cheaper rates as compared to fee free lenders with higher rates. Some personal loans have the flexibility of a redraw and most allow early repayment.

 

Your personal loan finance terms will vary from 1 year to 7 and the amounts can range from $5,000 to $100,000 with most lenders capping a personal loan limit to $50,000.

common home loan questions

How much does it cost to use the Fundd service?

It usually costs you nothing to use fundd to get your loan. This is because we are paid by the lender with who we align you with.

In nearly all refinances, we save you a ton of money and improve your financial situation. You literally make money from us working for you.

How is this possible? The lender’s profit share with us. They opt to do this as we do all the leg work and introduce you to them. This means the lender does not need to pay for home loan writers of their own and the administrative tasks stay with Fundd ongoing too.

In rare circumstances, we need to charge a fee. If this is the case we will tell you upfront why and how much this fee will be. A fee is usually systemic of a complex lending situation.

How much can I borrow?

Head over to our calculator’s page and check them out! We have the best calculators in the business. These, of course, are not a reflection of individual banks borrowing assessments.

We can complete an accurate borrowing assessment after you fill out the client centre and we get to know you better!
